All we know is that there's still no contact with the colony, and that a xenomorph may be involved.

Well I managed to accomplish some big things today, largely with the help of J. We managed to transport my non-existent black melamine (after much searching in the lumber bay).

We also stopped at Home Depot on the way back and grabbed some 5/8" black melamine for the control panel.

'Hey where do you guys have your melamine, I'm grabbing some black 5/8's stuff.'

'Ooohhh black, yah I don't think we have that.'

'I already called ahead, you do. What aisle is your stuff in?'

It's okay, I managed to find the non-existent black 5/8" melamine without his help. Why the resistance to black? They have cherry and walnut, but they think black is odd.


The fourth piece of good (I'm glad I got 4 instead of 3) is messed up on one side with the melamine. I'm sure I'll use that as the back piece to the cabinet and just face it inside.

Major assembly should start this coming Saturday assuming no unforeseen complications.

J is finalizing up the control panel layout, and getting some decent plans for 2x4 frame to support the monitor.

I'm still screwed on artwork, I haven't received positive responses from the limited amount of Rampart owners, and I may be forced to change the artwork theme for the cabinet.
